Passing is also in the running for Rebecca Hall for screenplay and the Bingham Ray Breakthrough Director Award, while Tessa Thompson and Ruth Negga are nominated in the gender-neutral lead and supporting performance categories.

Apple’s CODA and A24’s Red Rocket earned three nods each. CODA’s Troy Kotsur and Marlee Matlin Marlee Matlin are nominated for supporting performance and Emilia Jones for breakthrough performance while Red Rocket is recognised for Sean Baker & Chris Bergoch’s screenplay and Simon Rex’s lead performance. A24’s The Green Knight landed two nods for feature and David Lowery’s screenplay.
